Really, the food is amazing and I really recommend the frozen pie desert! The Lime soup is amazing! Just like the ones you can find in Yucatan peninsula. The environment is good, but one weird thing that happen the day I went was that me and my partner were the only clients that night.

Let's face it, Los Almendros is a fast food quality restaurant served slowly. Very slowly! But the worst thing about Los Almendros is that their dishes are cooked early in the day and re-heated, badly and unevenly, just before serving. Ah yes, and the staff couldn't care less. They will not see me at Los Almendros ever again.

This was a unique experience since I've never had Yucatan food which offers a different take on Mexican food. It was a lot of food and a good overall experience.

The food is remarkable in that it is very simmilar to what you can find in Merida. I went on a Saturday around noon and the place was very quiet, however the food was delicious and the... More

This place is right by my office in the Guadalupe Inn neighborhood of MX City ... We chose this location to host a family member's birthday in December and it was like pulling teeth to get the event organized ... although I must admit the event went off without a hitch on the day of. My real issue is that... More

We arrived here, sure to spend a good time. The place is very nice and the decor pleasant. Problems arrived when the waiter started to take advantage of our "Gringo's faces"!!! Within his proposal of free starter, he added an expensive one without telling us about this detail (+18usd on the bill!!!!). After he always asked us for a new... More

About typical dishes all of them are well known, because of that I would like to talk about the "Agua de Lima" the fruit it is... More

We went to The Almendros that is located on the street of Campos Eliseos in the Polanco district of Mexico City. The place is bright and airy, the tableclothes a cheerful white and yellow. Service is very fast. We hadn´t even placed napkins on our laps when a waiter pulled up with a service cart full of favorite Mexican alcoholic... More

This restaurant features food from the Yucatan and is delicious. They have live traditional music. The frozen margaritas are fantastic. There is a taco dish with corn tortillas that are opened and filled with a thin layer of beans... so amazing. Also, the Lima soup is great..
